I went to http://support.hp.com. I was able to view the maintenance and service manual for the NC6230. You said you removed the RTC battery, but try again following these steps:

1. Remove the battery pack from the laptop.
2. Remove the real-time clock (RTC) battery
3. Wait approximately 5 minutes.
4. Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer. Do not put the battery pack back in yet.
5.Connect AC power to the computer.
6.Turn on the computer. All passwords and all CMOS settings have been cleared.

Let me know if this works.
